    How naive, you think bureaucracy protects those of us at the bottom.

    •  But most of us are willing ... (0+ / 0-)

      ... to trust bureaucracy with our retirement and our healthcare.  I'll never understand.

      The wisdom of my forebears ... Two wise people will never agree. Man begins in dust and ends in dust — meanwhile it's good to drink some vodka. A man studies until he's seventy and dies a fool.

      •  Well, Social Security has 75 years of history (5+ / 0-)

        ...and has proven to be run very effectively.   We also know how the private healthcare insurers haven't screwed their policy holders over time and time agian, and comparing them with Medicare it's clear to many of us that the government run program - while not perfect - is better.

        Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country. - FDR

      Works in Kentucky.

      Sorry about life in Arizona Horace. What can I say? Kentucky does a better job in this department.

        So I also get the special laws made up by Transphobes working at these agencies. I never know for sure.

        One of the oxymoron's of being Tansgender is you are told by people in authority that you engender distrust. Why because our first interaction is a 'lie' to them. But then I'm lied to constantly by those in authority.
